The Movie Orgy is a legendary five-hour triumph from Joe Dante—one of genre cinema's most significant masterminds. In 1968, the future director of Gremlins and Innerspace took an apartment’s worth of 16mm prints and, with the help of producer Jon Davison (Robocop), meticulously fashioned them into what is quite possibly the world's first found footage megamix. Comprised of commercials, news reels, clips from feature films, TV bloopers, and much more, The Movie Orgy is both a fascinating cultural artifact and a wild vortex of mashed-up magnificence. Unavailable to screen for decades and never available on home video, the film has been preserved from the original 16mm reels by AGFA in partnership with Joe Dante and Jon Davison. (Joe Dante & Jon Davison, USA, 1968, 275 min., color & b/w)
